Seqwater is a sustainable water business, providing bulk water sources for South East Queensland, including water recycling, and is the host organisation for the Centre through its wholly owned subsidiary, Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence Limited.
As the original owner of Australia’s largest recycled water project, the $2.5 billion Western Corridor Recycled Water Scheme, Seqwater's predecessor WaterSecure led the bid to host the Centre in 2009, capitalising on the significant expertise which it had developed in this field.
Seqwater has already produced more than 31 billion litres of purified recycled water, reduced phosphorus in the region’s major waterways by more than 90 percent and has eased pressure on the region’s potable water supplies by providing an alternative water source for the Swanbank and Tarong Power Stations.
